The wooden bows of the 19th and 20th Century are perfectly matched to soft gut strings without metal windings. But over the past decades modern Strings with much higher tension have become the norm. For these new strings we design and build a new generation of bows with a significantly improved elasticity that restores the perfect balance between strings and bow and thus a much more natural playing. It became possible only because we succeeded to unfold the incredible potentials of carbon fibres. Today we are making bows that perform like no other and that will still set the standards in a far away future.

We found that today the ideal weight of a bow can be found half way between the light clip-in-bows that were used until early the 19th Century and the heavy Romantic “modern” bows that followed them. A key element is the ideal distribution of the mass and the total balance of the bow. As we have figured that out quite nicely, an Arcus bow offers an entirely new playing experience: You can perfectly play Bach, Haydn or Mozart on an instrument with a modern setup, just as well as Brahms, Wagner or Bruckner.

Arcus bows have freed countless players from tiredness or pain in their bow arm. The microscopic roughness of the stick provides a perfectly safe hold, which allows to hold the bow with a relaxed grip, just as the lack of any stick wobble. But most importantly the Arcus bows avoid the low frequency vibration of around 50 Hz that all wooden bows produce (their fundamental resonance). In the Arcus bows this is at around 100 Hz and thus out of the dangerous spectrum.
